During the summer of 1974, Asier, a young man, embarks on a voyage of self-discovery among the rusty desolation of an industrial neighborhood of Bilbao. Despite being color-blind, he is determined to paint a portrait of the girl he is in love with. He doesn’t want to ask his father Andrés, a well-known amateur painter, for help and turns to Mateo, his brother, who agrees to teach him in exchange for money. But Asier’s psychological block is too strong, and Mateo does not manage to break it. One day the family receives the news that Mateo has died in an accident. It becomes the touchstone that Asier needed to end his mental block. Asier finally manages to finish the portrait of his loved one. He feels that is a lost cause, but he does not care. He has won something much more important in the process.
